The major city of al-Qaim is the last major city held by ISIS in Iraq and its liberation will severely hinder its operations in neighboring Deir Ezzor province in Syria. 

In addition, Iraqi forces have also liberated the H2 Airbase, al-Husseiniya, al-Nadirati and al-Kurati in its offensive to reach al-Qaim.
